kept coming back up. and that was unity. they tell me tomorrow, when donald trump takes the stage, they want to hear him bring a message of bringing people back together. if he can set that tone on day one, they're hopeful that lawmakers and americans who haven't been on board with mr. trump will give him a chance. >> you know, it's a fresh start for america. >> reporter: for anthony roamington, the inauguration of donald trump will be an experience. >> i'm looking to seeing history in the making. it's a once in a lifetime, pretty awesome to see president trump get sworn in. >> reporter: the anticipation is great. and expectations are high. >> we need to come together and unify as an american family. i think president-elect trump soon to be president trump has that opportunity. on friday, the 20th, to get us all to start thinking as a team. we're all in this thing
together. and we need to move forward together. >> reporter: we sat down with dr. james hilty, a history professor at temple. necessary of pitching unity after a bitter campaign run could prove challenging for the president-elect. >> he needs to be humble. and quite frankly, to show some joy is normally a part of inaugurations. so far there hasn't been a lot of joy or a lot of happiness in this particular transition. >> reporter: he admits other presidents have had challenges winning over the american people in the past. but were able to do so. >> to the best of my ability -- >> ronald reagan captured a lot of undecided and maybe fence-sitting americans, just simply through his graciousness, and his ability, if will you, to be a good guy. and also to inspire hope. bill clinton did the same thing. >> reporter: if trump can kauchl
as gracious and show humility, that could go a long way. carrie said she has spirited conversations with friends agree. >> most of them talk about mr. trump. i hope to hear them talking about reaching out to people to understand to give that opportunity to help america great again. >> reporter: and you're taking a live look right now at union station. donald trump and mike pence will be there tonight. tomorrow, when donald trump hits the stage to address the nation, he will do so with the lowest ever approval rating of an incoming president. only 44% of americans agree with how things have gone so far. which is down six points from almost a month ago. when i see you in the next half hour, we're going to talk to the next generation of voters. as we know, it was a very difficult group for trump and clinton both to reach.

lewis talked about those fears when he questioned the president-elect's legitimacy. i asked the deputy chair of the pennsylvania republican party how the president-elect can pull the country together. >> talk to people. and their actions speak so much louder than words. that's what we have to do we have to act and get it done. and the promises that he made for people that voted for him. so, yes, follow up on those promises. he can't do it right nay. everything can't happen. everybody wants all of these things to happen. you can't do ten things. you've got to focus on a couple things, get them accomplished and people will start feeling better. >> perhaps the biggest concern is about people's health care. still ahead, i asked renee amoore, what she and the trump team are doing right now to replace the affordable care act.
